If you update a tree, and then visit one of its subdirs in TortoiseSVN,
tsvn will do a non-recursive status operation on the subdir. Currently,
this involves reading only one entries file; under your scheme, it might
have to read several. Thus, several times slower. (At least, in
theory. There might be more important sources of slowness in the
non-recursive status operation.)
